Things to do on Laos Tours
Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Laos
You will inevitably be familiar with the Laos tubing tours that brought a lot of attention to Laos for backpackers, however with that now being banned due to lack of safety, all focus is back on the real gems and cultural experiences of Laos.
Vientiane is Laos’ capital and despite constant steps moving forward this capital city is still described as the most relaxed capital city in the world. The Languid nature of Laos is a welcome one from the hustle and bustle of Thailand and alike. The contrasts are compelling, in what is a constant battle between a communist past and an ever-nearing capitalist Laos.
Feast your eyes on the vibrant colors on showcase as you are welcomed to the fascinating city of Luang Prabang. Being a UNESCO world heritage site, this peaceful city is devoid of unwelcome trucks and lorries which maintains the infectious charm. Surrounded by mountains and with the therapeutic river sounds pervading the streets, Luang Praband can reinvigorate even the most jaded of travelers.
Vieng Xai is another town that excels in being aesthetically unimaginable. The town lies in a stunning valley of colorful hills and stunning limestone cliffs, a combination that elicits a photo at too many opportunities. A truly beautiful stop-off point that shimmers with color and a tour of the caves and the history of the city will illuminate just how far Laos has come since the war.
Laos tours would certainly be incomplete without adventure activities such as the thrilling gibbon experience, a synthesis of pure adrenaline and appreciation over the conservation of the wonderful wildlife. On this 3 day adventure you will turn from human into Tarzan/superhero as you navigate the forest on your zip-lines and cross paths with lions, leopards, black bears and of course gibbons.
For a religious experience and a look into beautiful ancient architecture, head to the famous Wat Phu Champasak, an archaeological site that contains meticulous statue work and a palpable spiritual essence. Alternatively, go to Wat Ho Pha Bang for more spiritual harmony.
So What’s Laos all about?
Food and Culture of Laos
Like most South East Asian countries, Laos uses a lot of spices and herbs in their cuisine. Lemongrass and fish sauce are particularly popular.
Sticky rice is a staple dish in Laos, often accompanied by fresh fish or meat which is often uncooked (similar to cerviche).
A cooking course on your Laos tours is recommended, especially to learn the unique and distinctive way of turning simple vegetables and herbs into wholesome and rustic dishes.
